Deprecated Cisco IP Phones in CUCM 14

Remember this mess with several tens of Cisco IP phones available on the market (not counting video endpoints)?
There were:

  • old-school 7900 series,
  • intermediate 6900, 8900 and 9900 models,
  • newly introduced 7800 and 8800 IP phones,
  • finally some experiments like 3905, Android-based DX650 etc

So these times are over.

For the past couple of year Cisco step by step cleaned up the IP phones portfolio: In Cisco Unified Communications Manager 11.5 they deprecated 7902, 7905, 7910, 7912, 7920, Conference Station 7935.
The following models were deprecated in Cisco UCM 12 - wireless IP Phone 7921, 7970 and 7971.

And now the MAJOR CLEANUP is coming with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Release 14 affecting CUCM 14, Cisco BE 6000 / 7000.

Just take a look. The phone models to be deprecated in Release 14 are:
- Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3911
- Cisco Unified SIP Phone 3951
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 6911
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 6921
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 6941
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 6945
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 6961
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7906G
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911G
- Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925
- Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G-EX
- Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7926
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7931
- Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7936
- Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7937G
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7940
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7960
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985
- Cisco Unified IP Phone 8941

If you are using any of these phone models and you upgrade to Release 14, you will not be able to use these phones after the upgrade.

After you switch over to CUCM 14, registration of these phone models will be blocked.

So, better check the phones you use and plan the migration to 7800 and 8800 series in advance.
